Antoine Brockington can still go out every night for Coppin State and average close to 20 points a game and put on a good show with the basketball in his hands.But this is not the same Brockington high-wire act that played in Columbia, Mo., Ames, Iowa, Tucson, Ariz., Madison, Wis., and Oklahoma City in December.The 6-foot-2 senior guard just hasn't been exploding to the basket or soaring as high on his dunks against Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foes as he did against schools such as defending national champion Arizona and Missouri.

Stanley Brockington took pride in the clothes he wore and the clothes he made at his Northwest Baltimore tailor shop, especially because he had few to wear as a child growing up.He also enjoyed cooking and serving big meals with a variety of foods -- he and his brother and sisters had scant meals growing up poor in rural Virginia.But Mr. Brockington, 61, who died of heart failure Friday at home in South Baltimore, may have been best known for his love of fishing -- and the wonderful fishing tales he told.

Antoine Brockington knows his life will never be the same.The Coppin State senior guard is something of a celebrity on and off the basketball court.Two improbable days at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena in last March's NCAA tournament assured Brockington of that honor. He still gets fan mail from Pittsburgh more than eight months after he captivated that city and much of the nation with his showing on the court.Brockington still signs autographs around Baltimore and is the most recognized player on a Coppin State team that pulled off a stunning upset last March 14 against South Carolina and came back two days later and almost did the impossible again against Texas.

A story line retired a month ago -- Antoine Brockington responsible for his team's fate -- is making a brief comeback.Brockington, whose college career at Coppin State ended with a loss in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference finals, hit two go-ahead free throws with 17 seconds left to give the North team an 87-83 win over the South in the Black College All-Star Classic, yesterday at the Baltimore Arena.Such heroics hardly seemed necessary when the North held a 19-point lead. But the South stormed back to take an 83-80 lead on a three-pointer by Steven Mattair of Miles College with 56 seconds left.

Council eyes resolution to back teachers over impasse A dispute between the Baltimore Teachers Union and the chief of the city school system spilled into the City Council last night with the introduction of a nonbinding resolution supporting the union in the impasse. Councilwoman Sharon Green Middleton, a former teacher and the wife of labor leader Glenard Middleton, introduced the resolution, which was sent to the council's labor committee. Last week the councilwoman and her husband were among more than 150 protesters who protested a proposed change that could affect the way teachers use planning time.

Two Baltimore men who kidnapped and robbed an off-duty city police officer were each sentenced yesterday to 45 years in prison. This month, a city jury convicted Timothy Brockington, 28, and Tyrone Gross, 34, of kidnapping, carjacking and robbery. The two were caught after the kidnapped and blindfolded officer freed himself and shot the two men with his service weapon. Officer Antwan Boykin, who joined the force in 1999, was in his personal car about 1:30 a.m. July 5, 2005, when three men approached him at a gas station in the 500 block of E. Mulberry St. One man drove off with Boykin's car while another forced Boykin at gunpoint into a burgundy Lincoln driven by a third man. Inside the Lincoln, Boykin was robbed and struck in the head with the gun as the car headed toward the 1100 block of Myrtle Ave. There, the pair blindfolded Boykin, walked him down an alley and talked about stashing him in a vacant rowhouse.

A 50-year-old Gwynn Oak woman with terminal cancer who alleged that her medical condition was misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome has been awarded a $4.4 million judgment by a jury in a malpractice suit against her former physician. Joyce Grimstead sued Dr. McNeal Brockington after another physician linked the back pain she had for three years to what became a large cancerous tumor. Brockington had diagnosed her pain as irritable bowel syndrome, according to the lawsuit tried in Baltimore Circuit Court.
